BMC continued their aggressive strategy in today's stage 4 of the Eneco Tour when Daniel Oss and Silvan Dillier both attacked in the finale. The former managed to build up a 30-second advantage and even though it was ultimately fruitless, the attack was good for his confidence.

 

BMC Racing Team's Silvan Dillier and Daniel Oss each launched attacks in the final 20 kilometers of Thursday's stage of the Eneco Tour of Benelux before a crash near the finish line took down several riders, including the race's defending champion. No BMC Racing Team riders were involved in the pile-up as Nacer Bouhanni (FDJ.fr) took the stage win ahead of Luka Mezgec (Team Giant-Shimano) and Giacomo Nizzolo (Trek Factory Racing).

 

Dillier said he was trying to contest the finish of the 179.1-kilometer stage after his attack with 17 km to go was reeled in.

 

"It was a tricky final," he said. "In the last corner, I came over a lot of guys and had a lot of speed on the finishing straight, which was really long – around 800 meters. Then I saw this crash with 500 meters to go and I had to brake a little bit and lost my speed. Otherwise, I could have made a better sprint."

 

BMC Racing Team's Manuel Quinziato held onto his third place overall, four seconds behind race leader Lars Boom (Belkin Pro Cycling) and tied on time with second-placed Tom Dumoulin (Team Giant-Shimano). Defending Eneco champion and Stage 2 winner Zdenek Stybar (Omega Pharma-Quick Step) was one of those involved in the crash. 

 

On the race's first day in Belgium after three stages in The Netherlands, Oss said he saw an opportunity to attack as the peloton began the second of two laps of a finishing circuit. He gained as much as a 25-second lead before being hauled back with six kilometers to go.

 

"I found a small hole and I tried, but nobody followed me so I was a alone," he said. "I got a gap, but not enough to enough to make it to the finish. It was a good attack for my morale and to find out my shape."
